»Canyon Ridge Trail, Ft. Worth Nature Center and RefugeCanyon Ridge Trail, Ft. Worth Nature Center and RefugeJoin me for a hike on Canyon Ridge trail. We'll start at the north trailhead and go south for about 3 1/4 miles. The trail offers many rocky short climbs and descents. Once on the ridge top we will pass old CCC structures such as "Lone Point" and "Rest A While". Also along the ridge are scenic views of Lake Worth and the hundreds of water lilies along the shores of Lake Worth. We will then go down the "staircase" and wind our way through a shady wooded area. Once at the bottom we'll cross a parking area and onto Greer Island. Here we will have lunch at the old Greer Pavilion. Around Greer Island are great examples of large water lilies, button bushes and willow trees. The Audubon society has a trail to walk around the island for bird watching. Great egrets and herons can usually be seen along the waters edge. There is a good story about local conservationist, Margaret Parker, who got the Ft. Worth community organized and lobbied to keep Greer Island unspoiled. After lunch we will go north on the canyon ridge trail and back to the cars. The outing will end once we are back to the cars but for those interested we will go over to the Hardwicke visitor center. On our way out of the refuge we will pass "Bison Range" and maybe spot a bison or two if we are lucky. We will meet at 9:45 and be back to the cars by 4:00ish. The hike will be 6 1/2 to 7 miles. Expect a comfortable pace of around 2 mph so we can enjoy the day and make new friends. Wear hiking shoes and bring appropriate day hiking gear. Bring a lunch and at least 2 liters of water (there will be no water sources once on the trail). A hat and sunscreen are advised. There are bathrooms at the nature center and a port-a-john near Greer Island. Limit 10 people. Well behaved dogs are welcome if on a leash (remember there are numerous rocky climbs and descents). $5 per adult $3 per child.
